Examines religion, freedom of expression and personal responsibility: Election night in the U.S., and things are looking rosy for the Democratic Party. Holed up in a hotel, watching the results flood in, are the likely President-elect, his wife, advisors and 20 year old son John Jnr. Every speech, interview and photocall has been carefully controlled and meticulously orchestrated, all leading up to this big night. At the same time controversial photos of his gay son John Jnr are gathering momentum on the internet showing him 'attending a party at his Ivy League university dressed as Mohammed. Even worse, an online video shows him simulating oral sex, still dressed as the Prophet.' Whilst his father's advisors work against the clock on damage limitation, it's up to father and son to try and reach an agreement.

Looking for the best seats...
